How much do you drink?

Are you thinking of cutting down on how much alcohol you drink? Doing so could have lots of benefits, from feeling better and more clear-headed in the short term, to reducing your risk of serious health conditions in the long run.

Although it’s nice to enjoy a tipple or two, too much alcohol is bad for your health. A good starting point to working out whether you need to cut down, and how much by, is to think about how much you drink on average. Try using this DrinkAware alcohol unit calculator to find out where you’re at.
